Rumor: Memphis trading for Marreese Speights?

The Memphis Grizzlies will try to get through the loss of Zach Randolph for up to two months by acquiring Philadelphia 76ers big man Marreese Speights. After learning that Randolph with miss six to eight weeks with a torn medial collateral ligament, suffered Sunday in Chicago, the Grizzlies on Wednesday completed a three-team trade with Philadelphia and New Orleans.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s a stop-gap measure, but the Memphis Grizzlies have no choice.

With Darrell Arthur and Zach Randolph out long-term, the Grizzlies acquired Marreese Speights from the Philadelphia 76ers for a pair of second round draft picks.

This, after all, is Memphis’ year. They nearly advanced to the Western Conference Finals last year, and have to build on that momentum to solidify the market.
